  • The Piper Sandals are some of the best sandals made. I have a friend who has had her pair for the last 17 years and has had them re-soled once (for a nominal fee) and the strap replaced (which they do for free, by the way.) I just love mine, which I got in September. They make them, one at a time, in a workshop in their home. Lovely people making lovely sandals.
